Saint Louis Fashion Week: Spring into Fashion

And, we’re off! Spring into Fashion, the first runway show of the Spring 2014 season of STLFW, went down last night at the Saint Louis Galleria Mall. In addition to delivering a steady flow of up-to-the-minute style inspiration, the event raised over $3,000 for Friends of Wings, a St.Louis-based non-profit organization that holistically supports children with life-threatening illnesses.

Last night’s show featured styles by several of the Galleria’s top stores—Fossil, Francesca’s, True Religion, White House Black Market, Banana Republic, Bebe, Tommy Bahama, and Anthropologie. Shoes were provided by Aldo Shoes and Sperry Top-Sider.

From masterfully mixed prints to a safari chic ensemble, here are my favorite styles fresh from the runway:

Left: Anthropologie dress, Anthropologie shoulder bag

Middle: Francesca’s top,  Francesca’s shorts

Right: Banana Republic top, Banana Republic shorts

Want to elevate your style this spring? Day one of STLFW gave us the green light to mix prints, showed us that beautiful blooms produce iconic style, and demonstrated that jumpsuits and jogger pants can be super sophisticated.

Mixed prints: Francesca’s top, Francesca’s skirt

Moody florals: White House Black Market dress

Graphic florals: Anthropologie dress

Jumpsuits: Bebe sleeveless jumpsuit

Jogger Pants: True Religion camo pants

The next stop on the STLFW train is Saks for a special presentation by Rebecca Minkoff tonight. Check out the full schedule in Get Ready for Saint Louis Fashion Week.
